There is not much more perfect than sitting on the couch beside your Nemesis and holding hands while you both browse tumblr on your laptops.

I like how calmly everyone in the WTNV fandom is waiting for StrexCorp to come down. We all know it’s going to happen, and we’re not impatient. It feels very much like, with each passing episode, we sharpen our teeth a little more, waiting for the giant to fall so we can begin the feast.

Breakdown of Terms: Demigender, Bigender, and Specifics

demigenders:

I’ve been answering a lot of questions about this, so I thought this would be good to make. If anybody has anything to say about this or wants to discuss how terms are defined, feel free to respond.

Bigender is a term for someone who identifies as two genders, bi meaning two. They may or may not be fluid. What those genders are is not specified. However, it is often assumed that bigender means being both male and female, and leaves those who are not both male and female erased.

Demigender is a term for bigender people who do not identify as both male and female. It generally includes one nonbinary gender, or lack of. It may include a binary gender as well, in the case of demiboys and demigirls. If it is two nonbinary genders, then the person is a demienby.

So demigender is a term within another, broader term. It is a type of bigender. This definition may be subject to change in the future, but it is how it is defined currently.

In addition, there are different types of demigirls, demiboys, and demienbys depending on what identities they are bigender between. With demienbys, this goes even further, as two identities must be specified, rather than just one. Demigirls will always be partially female, and demiboys partially male, but demienbys are more open to what two genders they may be.

So to break it down, here’s a list of terms, broken down into tiers from least specific, to most specific (Disclaimer: This is not an exhaustive list. There are many nonbinary identities out there.):

Tier Zero:

Gender: A complex social construct that contains many identities.

Tier One:

Bigender: A category of gender, for people who identify as two genders.

Tier Two:

Demigender: A category of bigender, for people who identify as two genders, in which at least one those genders is nonbinary.

Tier Three:

Demigirl: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both female and a nonbinary gender.

Demiboy: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both male and a nonbinary gender.

Demienby: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as two nonbinary genders.

Tier Four:

Androgyne Demigirl: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both female and androgyne.

Androgyne Demiboy: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both male and androgyne.

Androgyne Demienby: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both androgyne and another nonbinary gender.

Agender Demigirl: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both agender and female. Described as a dilution or disassociation of gender.

Agender Demiboy: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both agender and male. Described as a dilution or disassociation of gender.

Agender Demienby: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both agender and another nonbinary gender. Described as a dilution or disassociation of gender.

Aliagender Demigirl: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both aliagender and female.

Aliagender Demiboy: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both aliagender and male.

Aliagender Demienby: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both aliagender and another nonbinary gender.

Metagender Demigirl: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both metagender and female.

Metagender Demiboy: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both metagender and male.

Metagender Demienby: A bigender, demigender person who identifies as both metagender and another nonbinary gender.

Tier Five:

Agender Androgyne Demienby: A bigender, demigender demienby who identifies as both agender and androgyne. Described as a dilution or disassociation of gender.

Agender Aliagender Demienby: A bigender, demigender demienby who identifies as both agender and aliagender. Described as a dilution or disassociation of gender.

Agender Metagender Demienby: A bigender, demigender demienby who identifies as both agender and metagender. Described as a dilution or disassociation of gender.

Androgyne Aliagender Demienby: A bigender, demigender emienby who identifies as both androgyne and aliagender.

Androgyne Metagender Demienby: A bigender, demigender emienby who identifies as both androgyne and metagender.

Aliagender Metagender Demienby: A bigender, demigender emienby who identifies as both aliagender and metagender.

So obviously, once you’re past tier 3, things get to be a mouthful and a bit too specific. This is why most people just use demigirl, demiboy, and demienby. Enough is understood. If you truly want to explain the specifics, you can go down to the last possible tier and say, for example, agender androgyne demienby. However, in a lot of interactions that level of specificity isn’t needed. Regardless, the terms exist if you ever do need to explain in specifics. It’s useful to have these terms when you do want to convey specifics, because an agender demigirl and an androgyne demigirl are two different identities and will feel very differently about their gender.

I hope this helps anybody wondering about how the terms work and what means what in regards to demigender, bigender, and all the other terms under the sun. It’s a stacking system of labels, going from least specific to most specific.

This is the best explanation I have been able to find thus far on bigender and demigender. And it comes at a good time because I’m trying to nail down the specifics of my gender identity and I’ve only gotten as far as fluid and not always female.

I had to put it in two screengrabs so you could see it all, but here look what my dash presented me with today. I am amused.
